Juventus Establish First Contacts for Real Madrid Outcast Odriozola

Following a decent loan spell at Fiorentina in 2021/22, Alvaro Odriozola headed back to Real Madrid with the hopes of increased game time under Carlo Ancelotti. However, things have not looked bright for the 26-year-old right wingback, who continues to be sidelined. He has not appeared even once this season for Los Blancos.

According to latest information from Foot Mercato, Juventus are keeping close tabs on the defender’s situation and have reportedly also established first contacts with his entourage. They are yet to receive feedback from the reigning European champions regarding a transfer.

The Real Sociedad youth product’s contract with Real Madrid expires in the summer of 2024, and his best chance at moving away is arguably this winter transfer window – perhaps on a six-month loan deal with the Bianconeri until the end of the season.

Odriozola currently finds himself playing second fiddle to Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez, with center-backs Nacho and Antonio Rudiger also being used more often than him in the right-back position.
